This piece is the second in my newest series and looks at transformation. It depicts a shaman turning into a bird. While his counterparts watch on.
‘metaphors of transition that embody the non-sense but “true sense” of other myths are all associated, in one way or another, with shamanistic activities. Flight is depicted in a number of different ways, birds were associated with rain.’-San spirituality
This art work speaks of the pain of transformation. The breaking point of realisation you have to let go of the past and move forward as the new version of yourself. Sometimes alone and with a loss of identity, yet a new found strength. A starting point.
